I’m loving the look of Open Kitchen Shelves Farmhouse Style. However, when the concept of open shelving in the kitchen first came on the design scene, I said no never, not me. How could I lose all that storage when the upper cabinets are removed. Also, being a neat freak some what, I like everything tidy and hidden behind doors. As time has passed and I’m seeing all the great looking kitchens that have open shelving, I am realizing it does look neat and stylish. I’ve noticed one common theme among the staging of the shelve that I like, the use of one color or tone of items that are put on the shelves. Stacking like items and not filling up the shelves completely creates a pleasing focal point in a kitchen.
Look Linger Love created a beautiful tour of a Sullivan’s Island home that had a kitchen that really caught my eye. The wood shelves against the white planked walls and the marble counter tops make a stunning focal point. Again the use of stacking and grouping like items really makes this shelving unit functional as well as pretty.
Do you love the stools as much as I do from this Sullivans’s Island home? The natural wood looks great with the dark iron adding a touch of farmhouse to any kitchen. These stools are made out of mango wood, how cool is that! The overall height is 28″ and they sit 26.75 floor to seat and they weigh about 24 pounds. To purchase these for your home, just click here.
Ashton Design Studio created this gorgeous open shelving concept when they remodeled this kitchen. The use of white subway tile behind the shelves creates a bright and open feel to a once dark kitchen.
BHG shares with us the creation of a cottage feel in this kitchen with the shelves. Notice the use of light blue and green dishes amongst the white ones to pull this look together. The grouping and stacking of like colors makes for a neat tidy feel.
Country Living shares with us a great way to get the look, without a big wall commitment. Placing items matching the wall color and then a punch of green and black makes these shelves a great little nook for storage.
Coastal Living’s Seagrove Idea Cottage shows how open shelving works on small walls. Mounting the shelves near the ceiling gives these a grand scale and a place to keep all your extra serving pieces.
Country Living shows how great white on white with clear glasses can look in an old antebellum kitchen. What a great idea to keep drinking glasses in an easy place for the whole family to use.
Decor Pad has a rustic kitchen with wood beams, a steel and glass window over a farmhouse sink then accented with industrial open shelving. I am really liking these open kitchen shelves farmhouse style with a touch of urban feel.
Rooms for Rent keeps to the theme of white and clear glass then stacking items to give these shelves a neat yet very functional open shelving concept. I love the black wire basket with cookbooks and the jars of sugar and grains. She also incorporated on the opposite wall an open plate shelf which is adorable.
